The Ministry of Defence regularly receives queries from the wind energy industry, members of the public and Members of Parliament regarding the siting of wind power developments within the Tactical Training Areas.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 22 March 2001, Hansard, column 296, to my hon. Friend Mr. Chapman which states the MOD's policy towards wind turbines in areas where operational low flying takes place.
